I burned over 20 music cds using these Sony brand cdrs. Had no problems whatsoever. A few weeks later I go to make another music cd, and now I can't burn. Media Player gives me "Windows Media Player cannot burn the files to the CD. Verify that the disc is clean and not damaged. If necessary, select a slower recording speed or try a different brand of blank discs."

Well, I've lowered the burning speed to 'slow'. I've tried using various programs to burn with. I've tried like 3 different discs thinking maybe a couple in the pack were defective or something. Nothing.

Could this just be a sign that my drive is done for? It IS an old laptop so maybe after all that burning I did, its about ready to call it a life-span? Why else would a drive stop liking a certain brand all of a sudden after getting along with it quite intimately??? Help me out folks.

Drive could be dirty...I'd try a cleaning disc.

That makes sense. Any other possibilities?

Drive could by dying.

IME, optical drives seldom fail doing everything all at once...they go bit by bit.
